Delaware transfer Ithiel Horton to decide ‘soon’ between Pitt, Arkansas
By ADAM ZAGORIA
Transferring Delaware guard Ithiel Horton will make a decision “soon” after taking an unofficial visit to Pittsburgh and an official visit to Arkansas, he told ZAGSBLOG.
“[In the] next week and a half,” Horton said Wednesday after visiting both schools.
The 6-foot-3 Horton averaged 13.2 points and 3.1 rebounds as a freshman at Delaware. He will have three years of eligibility remaining.
Pittsburgh is looking to up its talent level in the ACC under second-year coach Jeff Capel.
“It’s a great city with a rich culture,” he said of Pittsburgh. “Legendary coach Jeff Capel is indeed building something great up there.”
New Arkansas coach Eric Musselman built his Nevada team into a national power largely through transfers.
“It’s a beautiful campus,” Horton said. “The facilities and the coaching staff are wonderful and they have an extremely high-level coach.”
